The TBR Takedown

Like every other avid book reader, or my laundry list of things to do, my To Be Read pile is always growing. My physical shelf is two rows deep already, and let's not even talk about what's on my Kindle. Since I got a little burnt out from all the reading that took place this summer {but hooray for meeting my Goodreads goal!} I've been reading much slower.

This month I've decided to buckle down and start tackling the list. For the rest of the year I'll only be reading books from my TBR list. In the past few months I've gone through the list to trim it down as I no longer wanted to read certain books. I also have this nasty habit of buying new books when I have recently purchased books at home on the shelf, also waiting to be read. Hello, my name is Michael and I'm a book hoarder.

Here's a look at what's coming up:

Summer Sisters / Judy Blume
I'm not a huge Judy Blume fan {gasp!} but this one caught my attention.

Mad About the Hatter / Dakota Chase
I received this for free from NetGalley in exchange for a review. Sadly, I haven't gotten around to reading it but I'm still interested because it sounds promising.

Wuthering Heights / Emily Brontë
I bought this book for $1 about 2 years ago. It's been sitting on my shelf ever since. During the summer I pledged to read it this fall. I'm {hopefully} sticking with it!

I Take You / Eliza Kennedy
This has been sitting on my shelf since May when I received it from Blogging for Books. Oops. The summer reading challenge kind of took over and then I just haven't been in the mood for it. But, if I want to request another book, I need to get through it. 

I'm sticking with these four since that's a decent amount of reading and Wuthering Heights is going to take some time because of the writing style. Hopefully I can blaze through these and keep going. I've got a new reading challenge all picked out for 2016 already.

How do you tackle your reading lists?
